|Hammers, Hendricks in chief run-off in Vidalia; Skipper re-elected in Clayton|
Vidalia Police Chief Billy Hammers faces Ronnie G. "Tapper" Hendricks in a run-off on March 8, while Clayton Police Chief Clarence "Papa" Skipper defeated two opponents to gain re-election.
One vote separated Hammers and Hendricks in the Vidalia police chief election.
Hammers garnered 761 votes and Hendricks 760 -- 43 percent each.
"I'm tickled to get enough votes to get into a runoff," Hammers said. "We're going to cover the town now and get ready for the runoff. I'm thankful for the support I got. I know there are some people who did not vote and we're going to try and get to them."
"I'm humbled and I'm thankful," said Hendricks. "The work has just begun. We're energized because of the response. The people of Vidalia have spoken."
Hendricks the "biggest issue in the race is the need for more visible patrols, someone being in contact with the people on a daily basis, and follow up information on complaints."
He said the response since the election "is actually greater than what it was to begin with. Unbelievable. We're happy and excited and we know that we can do it."
Ricky Williams finished in third place with 150 votes (8%), while C.A. "Sam" King finished fourth with 104 votes (6%).
In Clayton, Skipper received 170 votes (54%) to defeat Bobby L. Madison, 101 (32%) and Valerie Thompson Parker, 41 (13%).
"I'd like to thank the people of Clayton who volunteered their time and energy on behalf of my campaign," said Skipper. "Knowing that there are a lot of things that need to be done we will be calling on them for their support and help as well. We want to make our neighborhoods safer and it's going take everybody pulling together for one cause."
